More fear than harm ! While on vacation in France with his wife, Marie Cavallier, and their two children, Athena (8 years old) and Henrik (10 years old), Joachim from Denmark suffered a stroke. While an ambulance came to pick him up to transfer him to Toulouse University Hospital, he was operated on for a blood clot in his brain. In a statement shared by his family on Saturday July 25, 2020, it is written that “the operation was a success” and that his condition was now “stable.” If Prince Joachim is at the heart of the news today, he is less well known than Princes Harry and William in France. The opportunity to look back on its origins, but also on its career.
Born June 7, 1969 in Copenhagen, Denmark, Prince Joachim is the youngest son of Queen Margrethe II and her husband, Prince Consort Henrik. If his older brother, Prince Frederik will one day be brought to reign, the latter will soon be defense attaché in France at the Danish embassy. A tailor-made job for those who have long experience with the armed forces. After taking private lessons at Amalienborg Palace from 1974 to 1976 and at the private Kerbs School from 1976 to 1982, Prince Joachim was a boarder for a year at the Roches school in France. In 1987, it was after graduating from high school that the son of Queen Margrethe II began his military career. Since 2015, he has been a Reserve Colonel in the Royal Jutland Dragons Regiment, special expert for the armed forces.
Joachim from Denmark is married to a French woman!
Father of four children, Prince Joachim married twice. As a first wedding, he married the banker Alexandra Manley on November 18, 1995 at Frederiksborg Castle, north of Copenhagen. Together, the princely couple had two children: Prince Nikolai (20) and Prince Felix (18). After the couple officially divorced on April 8, 2005, Prince Joachim remarried to Marie Cavallier, a Frenchwoman, on May 24, 2008, in the village of Moegeltoender. Together they had two children: Prince Henrik (11 years old) and Princess Athena (8 years old).
